Wardrobe Essential: The Shoe Boot

Christina Garofalo

The shoe boot is the must-have men’s accessory for fall. This multifunctional model is not only stylish and comfortable, but it easily makes the transition from the office to weekend wear. Just about every designer has created an interpretation of the shoe boot, from the classic oxford style to sleek patent leather models to colorful suede varieties.

Following are some of our favorite shoe boots that can be found at Bergdorf Goodman Men’s new shoe library. (212.872.2526, www.bergdorfgoodman.com)

CAPTIONS FOR THE IMAGES ABOVE:

The slightly distressed, olive green oxford boot by Barker Black seamlessly combines a classic style with a casual edge. ($1,025)

When paired with a suit, Fratelli Rossetti’s patent leather lace-up boots mask themselves as basic black patent leather shoes. Trade the trousers for jeans, and the shoe’s subtle purple base, washed with a tint of gray, reveals a tasteful pop of color. ($830)

Pebble-grained leather may create a rugged look, but Ralph Lauren’s version—decorated with wingtip stitching and toe-punched detail—features just enough elegance for work-wear. ($1,100)

The textured Bordeaux-and-black lace-up boots from Bergdorf Goodman’s Silvano Sassetti appear almost like snakeskin, making them suitable for dress pants, or for tucked-in slim pants or jeans for a casual look. ($795)

Yves Saint Laurent decides to forgo the laces in the interest of sleek, leather lines for its fall ankle boot. ($850)

Stefano Branchini’s midnight blue boots, with a black marble-like polish around the edging, add dimension to a gray suit. ($695)
